Chapelle Expiatoire | Original resting place of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI

Witness the neoclassical memorial chapel, the original burial site of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, among several other prominent figures guillotined during the French Revolution.

Why Visit Chapelle Expiatoire?

They were buried in individual graves and their bodies were placed in beer before being covered with lime.
